1 GROWTH & INVESTMENT LAN September, 2007

2 GROWTH & INVESTMENT LAN Overview 1. Setting the Context (pp. 3-10) Benefits of Growth and Investment in MARC Service Objectives Existing Service Major Assumptions 2. hased Growth and Investment lan (pp ) 3. Implementing the lan (pp ) 2

3 GROWTH & INVESTMENT LAN Benefits of Investment in MARC Better service for current riders Addresses existing problems with capacity, frequency and reliability rovide framework for mobility in Central Maryland rovides fast, reliable transportation in key corridors Strengthens economic and social ties between Baltimore and Washington Serves BRAC-related travel markets Offers mobility choice for commuters and regional travelers Efficient and environmentally sustainable (air, water, energy) transportation investment Reduces need to expand highways in areas with limited/expensive construction opportunities Encourages efficient regional land use development and transit-oriented development rovides backbone for integrated Baltimore region transit system Supports more efficient rail freight movement 3

4 GROWTH & INVESTMENT LAN Objectives Ridership Increase passenger-carrying capacity threefold Increase share of trips by MARC during peak travel periods Service Increase peak service: 15-minute headways on enn Line 20-minute headways on Camden and Brunswick lines Increase off-peak service: 30-minute headways on enn Line Increased mid-day service on Camden and Brunswick lines rovide express and limited stop service rovide late evening service rovide weekend service Improve reliability to 95% on-time or better 4

5 GROWTH & INVESTMENT LAN Existing Service 5

6 GROWTH & INVESTMENT LAN Existing System Description enn Line Camden Line Brunswick Line Owner/operator Amtrak CSX CSX Stations Route-miles Weekday trains Train sets Frequency Weekday peak Weekday off-peak 25 mins (Wash-Balt) 45 mins (erryville) 30 mins Hourly (Wash-Balt) None (erryville) None 30 mins (Brunswick) 60 mins (Frederick) One mid-day train Weekend None None None Daily passenger trips 19,000 4,500 7,000 On-time performance (FY 07) 89% 91% 89% 6

7 GROWTH & INVESTMENT LAN Ridership Trends Ridership is at an all-time record level: 30,000+ daily trips Recent growth has been at over 6% per year during past decade Ridership now exceeds peak period system capacity of approx. 27,000 daily trips Ridership demand expected to continue to grow Baltimore City residential revitalization Suburban population growth Strong employment growth in corridors served by rail including BRAC-related effects Continuing regional highway congestion Expanded federal fare subsidy programs High cost of gasoline 7

8 GROWTH & INVESTMENT LAN MARC is Running Near Capacity Capacity constraints threaten the ability of the MARC system to meet this demand with acceptable level and quality of service arking lots at or near capacity erryville, Aberdeen, Edgewood, Martin Airport, enn Station, West Baltimore, Halethorpe, Odenton, Brunswick, oint of Rocks, Germantown, Laurel Existing trains are crowded; standees on 60% of enn Line trains in peak 2 hrs. Insufficient spare equipment Insufficient train storage Overnight at enn Station (no room to expand) Mid-day at Washington (currently exceeds MTA-Amtrak agreement) Equipment maintenance shops are at capacity cannot accommodate a larger commuter rail fleet MARC scheduling flexibility and ability to expand service constrained by infrastructure and presence of other operators (Amtrak service & freight) 8

9 GROWTH & INVESTMENT LAN Major rogrammed Investments Completion Date Cost ($M) Washington Mid-Day Storage 2012 $47 Track Capacity (all 3 lines) 2011 $30 Mid-Life Overhaul of MARC II Coaches 2012 $25 Mid-Life Overhaul of G40/AEM7 Locomotives and/or rocurement of New Diesel Locomotives Riverside Shops Acquire from CST for Maintenance Facility 2012 $ $25 aul Sarbanes Transit Center (Silver Spring) 2010 $66 Edgewood Station Improvements 2009 $3 Halethorpe Station Improvements 2011 $11 Misc. Other Improvements $94 FY TOTAL $369 Note: This level of investment maintains the existing MARC level of service; it is not sufficient to meet or drive future growth. 9

10 GROWTH & INVESTMENT LAN Major Assumptions CSX or Amtrak cooperation required, since MTA doesn t own or control: Right-of-way Washington Union Station, Baltimore enn Station, and other major stations Train dispatching and operations Equipment maintenance priorities Investment will need to comprehensively address system capacity needs in multiple areas Rail infrastructure upgrades and expansion Additional main line tracks Improved crossovers and track connections Upgraded signaling and enn Line electrification systems Train storage and maintenance facilities Rail cars Station parking 10
